So by your non sequitur argument... We don't need regulation of the Internet. The problem is that the major ISPs represent monopolies.
If only we had some way to break up these monopolies.or... oh wait, that would be regulation.
How do you know I'm not on that committee?
Because your hangups are so profound you would probably have a breakdown before being able to serve on this evil government committee?
This is an inane argument. It makes me angry. This attitude weakens democracy. It reminds me of people that have never voted but bitch about their elected officials.
The post office is irrelevant?
What the fuck?
Giving the government control just means you've given whomever has control the power of the government.
Did they teach you that in civics class? I am pretty confident that the USPS and my municipal ISP are not "out to get me". In fact I am fairly confident that the majority of the people elected to the muni are good people with a sense of civil responsibility (i.e. public servants). Are there some bad eggs? Sure. The fact is we can still hold government more accountable than a Fortune 500 company. I own stock in my government, not Comcast
Maybe you should get some help. Can you show me on this doll where the government touched you?

Welfare encourages people to fail. Regulation is a perversion. The world we live in is a cornucopia. Government is bad, Immunizations cause autism. My perspectives are shaped by an open mind, travel, dialogue, and experience, not fear and ignorance. The earth is flat.

Is this homeopathic economics?
Consumer heal thyself...
